RATINGS

95Wine Enthusiast

...packed with ripe yellow fruits. The full, rich nature of the wine shows the full-blown intensity of the great exposure of this grand cru vineyard.

92Vinous / IWC

...clean and precise, hints of white peach and passion fruit interlaced with cold stone/flinty scents. The palate is very well defined, crisp and linear with good weight and sense of grace. This handles its intrinsic power with style and it fans out beautifully on the tropical-tinged finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...bouquet of honeyed peaches, apricot and citrus blossom. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and unctuous, with broad shoulders and a generous attack, but balanced by incisive acids that lend the wine a structural tension that belies its musky, super-concentrated profile.
